On Sunday, our daughter, Katey, arranged for all the kids still living at home to meet with Chuck and I for lunch, at a local restaurant, for a Father's Day celebration. As I looked around the table at our six youngest children I had thoughts of, "My, they are all so grown up, now." My days of caring for little ones are over and it has gone so fast. I loved those years, but am happy for this new season. We had a nice meal, good conversation and they all paid for the meal. Then they all got in their own cars, except for 14 year old, Alex, who went with Julie, and we watched them leave, one by one. Our car is so empty, now, the big yellow van has been replaced. It feels kinda funny, bittersweet. But....it's part of life!
